One of the best features of FingBox is the ability to do the bandwidth analysis and find out exactly which of the lovely kids is hogging the bandwidth while simultaneously complaining the most! It’s stopped more than a few ‘discussions’ in our house!

What’s the most useful feature from your perspective and how has it helped in your home?

    I personally love the "automatically block new devices" feature.  So even is someone does manage to get on my wifi, they still won't have internet access until I allow it.

    My favourite is 'scheduled pause' - great for keeping children in line and off the internet so they have time to do other stuff, not on their devices.

    I have two :)
    Firstly, such a simple piece of functionaltiy, but it's great to be able to see what devices are connected to my network, often surprises me and friends to know that I have 65 devices connected at my home!  
    Secondly, I just love the ability to see when family members arrive home safely because their device connects to the network.  Peace of mind!

    My favourite feature is the ability to find your internet IP address. I use it to VPN back to the home network without having the expense of registering a domain name...👍😁😁

    The arrival / departure alerts are brilliant, especially for knowing that someone is home. Linked it with Hue and Hive to add a bit of extra utility!
